The most powerful poems here are those dealing with language and art/creation. It's an interesting and complex collection, but one which requires concentration and an acceptance of complexity. I'm not always sure that Duncan isn't more concerned with experimentation and language-play than any meaning, but there are Some poems here which I know I'll be returning to---those poems alone made it well worth my time.
